Having looked down on Gunn's Camp from the Harris Saddle we have often wondered about it - looks like a chess board from the Routeburn Track! It is a typically, quirky Kiwi situation. My husband stayed there recently for a couple of days at the end of the Hollyford Track. He found it delightful and fun. It does have a... More

Stayed here as part of a group tour! We got in late that evening & out first thing the next morning. Nice fire and kitchen area. The room we had was like an igloo, had to sleep fully clothed it was that cold. Heater didn't offer much heat at all. Bunk beds are made of solid wood an with a... More

We went there just by chance, after our visit to Mildford Sound. We rented a tiny rustic hut, with a bunk bed and nothing else in it and we had a really good night's rest. But what's best is the common kitchen and closed dining area, which is pretty new and well equipped. So finally, there was an escape from... More

I've visited Gunn's camp a few times over the years and on my last visit I was pleased to see that even though it still retains it's "rustic" charm they have built a new kitchen/dining area. Very big with a fire and gas cookers, plenty of seating and tables. There is a veranda outside as well as new toilets inside.... More

A group of five of us stayed in one of the cabins. The place is full of history and the owners obviously have a great sense of humour with all the little signs around. It was raining most of the time but the hut was cosy with the little logburner we had going. The owner kept the boiler in the... More

This place was unexpected in our trip. We didn't know where we were going to camp for the night and just happened to pass by; so glad we did. Loved all the quirky signs; so creative and cute. The owners, Lyn and Reid, were so nice too. One note of advice, beware of the sandflies, but those who live in... More

A very unique and quirky camp in the middle of nowhere. I came as part of a bus tour so it was a bit of a strange one for us a there didn't seem to be a lot of point in us visiting... but it was a lovely place anyway and provided very well for backpackers. There was a huge... More

We discovered this lovely place when we were looking for a refuge because of the bad weather on Routeburn track. My first impression… what the hell is this? Many weird signs and small huts with smoking roofs next to wild river painting scenery of an old gold mining village. But it isn’t. It’s the unique Gunn’s Camp. A place where... More

We stayed here in October 2011 during our one month tent camping trip in New Zealand. Upon our arrival, we were so amazed by the nostalgic charm of the entire place. Each and everyone of us was so busy admiring and exploring the surroundings and their knick knacks! The cabins at Gunn's Camp were used by the early pioneers whom... More
